Engine Performance problem
1992 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
Astra 1600 petrol
Car is missing and when pulling away but goes ok after a couple of seconds after the revs have built up. You can feel the car also missing somtimes durring a drive but the speed doesnt seem to be afected and was able to travel along a 40 mile dual carrage way fine at good speed. But after travelling 40 miles water temp kept riseing to the red.
I pulled over had to put 2 litres of water into radiater. I thenContinued jerney and temp was fine for another 40 miles before it rose again and another 2 litres of water had to be put in. Again car still missing.
Is this a bad batch of petrol because it started after I filled the tank.
spark plug or U/S lead.
Their is no water leakage from pipes or radiator.
head gasgit has no leaks or steam coming from it and looks fine.
please any ideas
